Hakafa means "encirclement."
We are a congregation of people:
No building, no board of directors,
and no fund-raising.
As our circle grows, our intimate,
casual, and welcoming atmosphere
remains. Hakafa is a circle
of caring people.

SCHEDULE CHANGES DUE TO COVID

Due to the current elevated numbers of COVID cases and hospitalizations as a result of the highly transmissible Omicron variant, Hakafa will be continuing with online-only worship, classes, and programs through the end of January. This includes Religious School and Hebrew School, which will also meet online-only through the end of the month. 

We wish those who are ailing a r’fuah shlay-mah – a quick, complete recovery.

Families with children in grades K-5, along with their caregivers, are invited to join us for the latest Hakafa Tayalim* outing!

Come view the stars and planets through a telescope, find out what's Jewish about astrology, and celebrate the monthly Jewish moon holiday of Rosh Chodesh!
